North Korea’s new missile, The Hwasong-15 marks a significant leap forward in north korea’s missile development.    The nose of this missile is much blunter than the previous version of the missile. Basically it slows the missile down so the heat inside decreases. The size of the nose cone and re-entry vehicle on the Hwasong-15 supports North Korea’s claim that the missile can carry a “super large heavy warhead.” The U.S is currently trying to investigate more and get more data about the Hwasong-15. Although the U.S is strongly armed and continues to plan ahead with missile intercept systems, North Korea’s current actions and attitude is causing concern.  Below is an article published December 1st 2017 describing the “what if?” scenario of a Korean missile launch against the US.

The truck that carries and supports this missile is also a very big improvements. North Korea claims to have made these trucks itself, but analysts believe they are modified versions or based on the chinese lumber truck, the WS51200. The tire itself for his vehicle is the size of King Jong Un. The transporter erecter launcher, or TEL, has nine axles.

 

Nikki Haley the U.S Ambassador said “We have never sought war with North Korea, and still today we do not seek it. If war does come, it will be because of continued acts of aggression like we witnessed yesterday. And if war comes, make no mistake, the North Korean regime will be utterly destroyed.” “The dictator of North Korea made a choice yesterday that brings the world closer to war,” http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/11/30/nikki-haley-war-comes-north-korean-regime-will-utterly-destroyed/

 

I personally think it’s all a game Kim Jong Un is playing. He is trying to intimidate us and trying to be feared. We have the technology now a days to counter missile attacks and to see them coming from such a distance. Although the U.S can swipe North Korea, It wouldn’t be smart. Just recently, Kim Jong Un said Trump’s actions and response is bringing us closer to Nuclear War. Going back to my point, I think this is all a tactic that Kim Jong Un is using to get into peoples heads. The U.S even took special measures and contacted China, An ally of North Korea to stop supplying them oil. I think North Korea’s game plan is to play with peoples heads and trying to dominate people by fear tactics.

    Newer weapons are always a better version of the old ones, and i think that North Korea is just making the worst decision because we don’t want war and they still doing aggressive acts, i just hope that they change their minds.

    I feel like North Korea is not going to launch the nuclear bombs but just have them there to threaten people like when a dog barks but don’t bite.That’s my expression on North Korea and their nuclear weapons they have made.

    All these countries need to stop making those destructive weapons. I see no self-defense purpose, for which most people would claim they are, in any of those but the aim to attack and kill each other. Hostility around the world will always be present, and the existence of those weapons will strengthen that even more. It is shocking how humans have altered life on earth. I would not be surprised if one day we are all wiped out by ourselves because from seeing what human is able to create, I believe he is totally capable of doing that.

    I think that North Korea and other countries who make this missiles need to stop making because people don’t no more war. People is tired of war already they only need peace. Making this kind of missiles is cost a lot money that Government throw in the trash. Which the money that Gov waste in this missiles they can make a lot of family happy. There are a lot family who are poor that they can’t send their children to school or have nothing to eat. Which this money that they waste they can do free schools or a programs to help poor people.
